    1) There are 4 sales & service centers in chennai. But one catch, when you buy a vespa, you cannot service it by outside mechanics because of nonavailability of spares.
    spares are readily available in vespa service centers though, for customer service. There is a customer care toll free no. also

    2) ASC of vespa is not average, It is good. They like to maintain the brand value & its exclusivity. Just Voice out your problems in service (usually there won't be), issues would be solved.Calls from vespa customer care usually approaches you and you can tell any issues you face. you can fix appointments through calls, if given at time, service would be done & returned promptly.

    3) Price is more. I do understand your opinion & respect it.The reason may seem illogical, they would like to maintain exclusivity, hence the price.
    but at the same time, it has features which is not found in any other scooters in India. Monocoque chassis, Superb Mechanical suspension (Not gas shocks),large fuel tank (7 litres), large under seat storage (20 litres),Full Metal Body which has very good durability, Engine centrally positioned for better weight balance, three phase alternator system which provides constant illumination at all times and their awesome engine which has nil vibrations ,silent engine on even high speeds & pickup only you can realise by a TD. Even its 125 cc variant (mine is 125 cc) can attain & hold 90 km/hr with ease.


    present versions comes with tubeless tyres & disc brakes. Why I should go gaga over this? Because I own it for the last 4 years.I would say the ownership is trouble free and the ownership cost is on par with its competitors, if not less.

    what a similarity between you & me. same as you everything, only the total commute of mine is worser than you, it is 45 km per day.

    2. Usage: Daily office commutation up & down 30kms with some roads have pot holes & patches.

    3. Age: 34, Height: 5.6 & Weight: 63
    Thank you for very valuable info, yes it looks like I have got some inappropriate information. I found out about the number of dealers after checking their website. And what a coincidence, Saturday evening I went to JMB Motors in Ashok Nagar and TDed VXL 125cc and after coming back home saw your message.

    After TDing the vehicle, felt no/less vibes, very stable and lighter compared to others (Activa, Access, ..), impressed with everything like drivability, suspension, body, placement of engine and all.

    Basic model comes around 83k plus accessories & others 5k totally = around 90k. Features wise - Drum brake, non-alloy wheels, Analog speedometer & fuel indicator, Tube tyres and comes in White, Yellow, Red and Matte Black colors.

    VXL 125 comes around 95k plus accessories & others, whereas which comes with Disc break, Alloy wheels, Digital Speedometer, Broader tubeless tyres - Front 110-70/11, Rear - 120-70/10 and with some more color options.

    After TDing Vespa tempted to go for it and also getting tempted to go for the second variant - VXL 125, but the price of which is too much, with the price I can go for Avenger 220 Cruise. Now I have ended up in total confusion.

    Confusion- One of the joys in the process of buying an automobile or any other purchase that's close to heart I must say. It's always a tug of war between heart and the mind ain't it ? and I'm going to add fuel to that fire, On the lines of Vespa, did you get a chance to TD Aprilia SR150 when you visited JMB? That might prove cheaper and more fun to ride. You may also include Suzuki Access to the list of scooters.

    Cheers!

    Haha yes, confusion is one of the joys, good that ends up in buying the good vehicle. Actually, I was planning to TD Aprilia SR 150, but I ain't since I already have neck pain and also if it is scooter family members may use it, so the sales guy told not to go for Aprilia. And yes I have already TD Suzuki Access and I liked it and felt better than Honda Activa & TVS Jupiter also the Access Special edition looks cool, comes in White Color, Chrome fittings for the mirror, brown color inner leg shield, chrome head lamp, retro maroon seat and few more. I was in the mindset to go for this or Unicorn or Avenger.

    Yes read your review earlier, very good review. I liked Access was thinking to go for it.

    On 30th after getting to know about offers on BSIII vehicles started enquiring about offers on Vespa basic model LX 125, they told 5k for 2017 model and 10k for 2016 model and no credit card surcharge. I enquired other showrooms also but the first one was better so I went for it and paid full amount on Thursday - card payment, they gave 12.5 k discount final amount came around 75k. So went for it...

    Got it delivered today morning! White Beauty's pic
